750mL bottle: Pours a very bubbly, golden yellow clearish color, big head, fine bubbles. Aroma of dark fruit, plum, citrus, rich, not strong. Bubbly taste, citrus, some alcohol, not very complex. Very light tasting but not much flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold with a medium sized fluffy white head of tiny bubbles, lots of sticky lacing. Aromas of yeast, banana, apple, coriander. Flavor matches aromas, fruity and yeasty with some spice and a hint of hops. Alcohol is well hidden. It’s sweet but not cloying, a pretty tasty triple. Mouthfeel is fizzy and foamy. Too much carbonation for my liking. This stuff just expands in your mouth with harsh carbonation. Too bad because it tastes really good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy golden-amber pour with a more stable head than the Blond, beautifully rocky and lacing. Smells sweet and malty, prevalent spiciness from coriander. Light fruitiness and alcohol, some yeast. As for the taste, crisp and medium-alcoholic, smooth feel with orange peels and spicey coriander, yeast, pepper. Pleasantly warming. A subtle and top-shelf Tripel, though I’d still rather have a Karmeliet.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours deep gold color,nice head. Very flavorful, hints of citrus. First couple of sips very dry, then the maltyness evens it out. Very drinkable, alcohol well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hooray for beer. This is a pretty standard tripel, but that in it’s own right makes it pretty good. I like the Affligem beers. Economical without sacrificing too much in the quality department. I had this in a bottle from Baron’s Marketplace and then on tap at the San Diego Brewing Company. The stuff will get you to orbit quickly.

2001: Pour is dark hazy golden with a pretty impressive head, since it is over 5 years old...very very yeasty aroma, citrus, pepper, cloves...bread too...taste is bitter and spicy at first, turning a little citric and sweet...fizzy mouthfeel still...finish is a little sour...sort of strange...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from 750ml bottle. the initial aroma was of Light yeasty and toasted malt. The head was frothy, off white that lasted for the majority of the time in the glass. When it did dissipate, it left ample lacing. The color was a hazy yellow amber color. The initial flavor was strong hoppy and alcholic with malty finish that lasted quite a while. somewhat mossy flavor. My first Belgian ale. It was good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Hazy gold with creamy white head. Very lively. Chalky texture, has a real spicy, nutty medicinal flavor, slightly fruity. Pretty complex. Finishes dry and oily. I like this, but I thought it would be better.
I enjoyed this beer so much more the second time around. I re-rated from 3.2 to 3.9
